Mother Of Nine Children Died At Conrad
Mrs. Elmer Schultz Passed Away at Her Home After a Long Illness
Mrs. Elmer Schultz died at her home in Conrad last Friday following an illness of six months from heart failure. She was 37 years old and was the mother of nine children.
(By Rev. C. K. Hudson)
Mrs. Schultz was the daughter of Thomas and Etta Higgin and was born near Liscomb, Iowa, Dec. 29, 1892. She was united in marriage to Mr. Elmer Schultz November 7, 1913. Nine children were born to them, two of whom with the husband have preceded her. Mr. Schultz died a little over a year go. One of the children died in infancy and Raymond passed away three weeks ago.
There remains to mourn her departure and to cherish her memory seven children: Thomas, Wilma, Marietta, Edna Mae, William, Margery, and Lois Jean, three sisters; Mrs. Perry DeSchamp of Eldora, Mrs. Lawrence Carlile of Scottsburg, Indiana, and Ione Higgin of Marshalltown and other relatives and many friends.
Mrs. Schultz was a devoted wife and mother, a loving sister, and a true friend. She will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of Conrad. She died as she had lived in Christian faith.
Funeral services were held from the church at two o'clock, Rev. C. K. Hudson officiating. Mrs. L. B. Canfield sang "Rock of Ages," "Jesus Savior Pilot Me," and "It is well with my Soul," accompanied by Miss Minnie Daggett. Those who looked after the flowers were Mrs. Clem VanSycle, Mrs. Elvin Bradly, Mrs. Sadie Conrad, and Mrs. Frank Dostal.
The pallbearers were Chas. Stepp, Morrison Tranbarger, Lawrence Morrison, Frank Dostal, F. O. Ray, and Guy Coulter. Burial was in the Conrad cemetery.
She gathered up the sunbeams lying all about her path;
She kept the wheat and roses, casting out the thorns and chaff.
She found the sweetest comfort in the duties of the day,
With a patient hand removing all the briers from the way.
She scattered seeds of kindness for the reaping by and by.
What a reaping hers must be!
